While we were in Yellowknife we took Hendrik to the museum. They had a really neat kids display with a miniature log cabin, teepee, and tent frame. These held his attention for all of 10 seconds and he was off running to the Christmas tree again. He spent most of his visiting time at the hospital trying to escape from the hospital room to run down the hall to see the Christmas tree near the nurses desk.
We were very thankful to have Dad with us in Yellowknife when Riley was born. He was there for work but was able to stay at the hotel with us and stay on after the baby was born. Hendrik was thrilled to see his Grand-Barry as he kept going to the hotel room door and asking if he was there almost every evening and then one day he woke up from his nap and there he was! Here is Grand-Barry with Hendrik and with Riley. HOORAY FOR GRAND-BARRY!!
Hendrik loves cameras. It's hard to take pictures of him because as soon as he spots the camera he runs towards it and you often just get a blur or a picture of the top of his head. The other night he figured out how to take pictures of himself. Here are a few...
Hendrik loves his little sister so much. He checks on her regularly to see how she is doing and tends to look quite concerned when she cries. He likes to snuggle his head up against hers and will give her little kisses. Kisses are rarely given to anyone especially someone he has known for so little a time. :)

We are finally home after two weeks in Yellowknife. Riley Lauren was born at 8:10 a.m. on December 12th, weighing in at 8lbs, 11oz. She is a very content baby and we are enjoying her so much. Hendrik is a very proud big brother and is constantly cuddling up to her and giving her little kisses. We will add more pictures later on this week but we thought we should give you a peek right away...

It's getting harder and harder to take pictures of Hendrik. He is very curious about how everything works and he loves to play with the camera. You have to turn on the camera in another room otherwise he hears the beep and comes running to investigate. He's been doing some really funny things lately but we have yet to capture them on camera as he always spots us and goes for the camera.

Gran'ma and Grandad Bernhardt have been up visiting for the past couple of weeks. Grandad has been out helping Dwayne put the tin roofing on our eight sided house. Very exciting!
As I am rather large and cumbersome to be out tromping around hunting in the woods with Dwayne this fall Christen has got to go along instead. She didn't shoot this moose but she did get a few grouse this trip. Since then she has been moose hunting again and also bison hunting with Dwayne and Earl.

Hendrik is a very helpful little fellow and as usual he was "helping" Daddy with the moose racks. He also likes to tell you when the microwave beeps or the dryer buzzes or when the toast has popped. He likes to collect receipts and bills and bring them to you and is only too willing to throw things in the garbage for you when asked. :)
